Maybe this one is kind of Christmasy.

Cheers

Thought I could try my hand on this great selection of the village by Danny. There were about 44 great interpretations and renditions of it. To me those of chiquitita, Trimoon stand out, as I like that style. Also that of lkroll "Thomas Kincaid" style, great job there.

My rendition was done entirely in Painter 9. I was in the past getting tired, of jumping from one software to another, so I am kinda trying to do it all in one software or the other. This is a watercolor rendition !

I can't be the first genius to come up with this technique...it came to me earlier today and this image looked like a good guinea pig to test it on.

I ran Impressionist>linear brush (in CS2) four times on separate layers. I tweaked a lot of the settings; all four layers were identical except for brush orientation. One had horizontal strokes, one vertical, one 45deg SW-NE, the other SE-NW. I added hide-all layer masks to all 4 layers, then painted them back in with varying opacities where each direction seemed to be appropriate, mixing them in places where there wasn't a clear direction suggested..

As an afterthought I added another layer under the other 4 and buzz-simplified it. Then I lowered the opacity of the top 4 layers a little to let some detail show through.

This is a terrific technique, dc. Using Layer Masks to selectively apply a layer's content is a powerful tool in anyone's bag of tricks.

Thanks for sharing this golden nugget!

i agree with danny and that seems like a very good method for making a nice cross-hatch style.

Wow I'm always amazed at the variety and talent on these boards. Fantastic jobs

This one just seemed perfect for a nighttime rendition, but in order to broaden my horizons, I resisted the urge and came up with this, a base layer done in a painted carved wood script, ovelayed with dodge and luminance layers of separate renditions done in some PSP scripts of my own making. finally a top color layer to give it a darker glow, ok so I couldn't resist a little darkness

Garazon, that is a great looking rendition, from the painterly edges to the painterly background and foreground. Great job.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #51- Village in Euro

Thank you, Sponge. I use only Photoshop and plug-ins (Buzz, Impressionist, Lucisart and Topaz, to name a few).

Sylvia

PS: I do have Painter but hardly use it at all, as I'm pretty happy with Photoshop.

A New Jigsaw Puzzle.

I did a couple different layers; desaturated, brought out the flora, smudged, softened and textures...

Smile Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #51- Village in Euro

This is my first post - done in Photoshop, using layers and masks and different paint brushes, increased the saturation, and on one layer used b&w and created a clouds layer and made it an overlay layer and lessened the layer effect. At one time I used the artistic watercolor on a layer and lessened the opacity of that layer too. Then I used a filter and overlaid a yellow-orange gradient layer. I just played with it until I got this effect.

When finished I applied a smooth watercolor paper texture.

I just came home from a knee replacement so can't sit too long at the computer, but just couldn't resist this challenge. I love photoshop and the filters. I also use a Wacom digital tablet.

Hope to enjoy this site more once I'm recovered and can sit at the computer longer. Enjoyed everyone else's versions of the image.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #51- Village in Euro

I loved looking at so many creative variations on a tiny little pic!
For some reason I'm stuck in Flaming Pear's India Ink mode & I can't get out! Followed with colorizing on a color blend layer. Thought I'd try something jazzy and did a torn edge all around but that kind of backfired and I thought it looked most terrible. Methinks I need to reset the history menu. Anyway, here it is.

Carolina Carrie and Moo, Your versions really look great. I think the softness you both achieved lends a real vintage quality to this image.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #51- Village in Euro

I used some photoshop filters, dodge and burn, clone tool, saturation tool and some others, I just didn't keep track of all of it. I used layers and hope you guys like it. What do you think?
